Are you fed-up with ordering Land Rover parts online? You have to scour through old parts catalogues or head to unofficial sites online, cross-referencing part numbers and seeing if there are any compatibility issues. It's a bit of a palaver.

Recently, I tried Autodoc, a car parts supplier, based in Germany. I spent around £500-ish on bits for my daily runabout to renew the bushes and suspension.

Here's what I thought to the online motor factors.

Things I liked about using Autodoc

First off, the price. This is often a key purchasing consideration for many Land Rover fans, who tend to be rather austere (tight). Autodoc were the cheapest source I could find for the OEM springs and dampers I wanted. They were competitive on bushes too. If you visit the site often, you'll see they run frequent sales too.

The second thing I really enjoyed was having the option of different manufacturers. Most Land Rover-only websites will give you the choice of one, or two, different parts suppliers. Searching through the Autodoc site, for TD5 Defender shock absorbers, there are parts from half a dozen different brands. Customers can go for the lower-end items from less-known makes or premium parts from companies like Bilstein and Monroe.

The third thing that I noticed, the Autodoc site is really easy to use. You can break down your parts searches to particular manufacturers, they allow you to quickly filter for front/rear and left/right-specific parts. The company obviously spent a lot of time working on the layout. You can also use the Autodoc app, though I haven't tried that.

The fourth highlight was their shipping partner. My item arrived courtesy of DHL, a courier I trust and one I actually prefer. Autodoc must have taken care of any import and customs fees as I paid a flat rate for the order.

Finally, they have a useful YouTube channel, though I don't believe they've done any Land Rover videos as of yet. You can request them on their YouTube page.

Things I think Autodoc could improve on

I can't really fault them, I'd have to be super picky. Everything came well packed and I found the customer help team to be responsive and fast. All in all, I can definitely recommend them. Give them a try next time you're ordering parts for your Land Rover.

They have parts for the Discovery, Freelander, Defender, 88/109, 110/127, Range Rover Evoque, Velar and the Range Rover Classic The address is www.autodoc.co.uk.
